Westmoreland Heritage Trail
The Westmoreland Heritage Trail Chapter is one of the newest chapters of the Regional Trail Corporation.  The trail chapter’s long term goal is acquire and construct a twenty mile hiking and bicycling trail from Saltsburg to Trafford.  Approximately nine miles of trail are completed and open from Saltsburg to Delmont.

The next 3.7-mile phase of the trail from Slickville to Delmont is now complete! This phase was officially opened on October 5, 2013 with a grand opening ceremony, ribbon cutting, and a special run/bike/walk after the opening.

Laugh-Out-Loud for a good cause!
The Westmoreland Heritage and Five Star Trail Chapters are hosting a Comedy Night event on Saturday, February 13, 2016 at the Delmont Volunteer Fire Hall. Tickets are $30 and include dinner and a show! All proceeds benefit ongoing maintenance of the two trail chapters. The show will feature professional comedians, raffles, 50/50 drawings, auctions and more! Doors open at 6:00pm and the show will go on until 9:30pm. Tickets for the Delmont show are available at Ferri’s Pharmacy in Murrysville, the Lamplighter Restaurant in Delmont, and the Westmoreland County Parks and Recreation office in Greensburg, or by calling (724) 733-3661. View the Comedy Night flyer for more information!

The trail is ideal for walking, jogging, bicycling, and cross-country skiing.  The trail has a wide, flat handicapped accessible surface and will accommodate everyone regardless of age or physical ability.

The heritage of the corridor includes numerous coal mining, salt mining, gas and oil well sites. At the western end in Trafford, founded by George Westinghouse, is the site of his second plant.
